Energy Quality Services
EnQS GmbH was founded in early 2016 in Karlsruhe as a spin-off of the FZI Research Center for Information Technology as a service partner for manufacturers of Energy Management and IoT solutions. The EnQS team has a more than 10-year background in application-oriented research projects at the FZI and KIT. The past research topics have now become innovative products urgently needed on the energy market. Specialized in Energy Management and IoT applications, the EnQS portfolio is now structured in four areas:
EnQS combines informatics and electrical engineering. Our focus is getting developed software and prototypes running under realistic conditions with real devices and then testing them before the finished system is deployed at the customer’s site. For this purpose, EnQS operates the EnQS Testlab with real PV strings, inverters, battery storage systems, EV charging stations, controllable loads, etc.
The EnQS Testlab
In the EnQS Testlab, we set up your prototype or PoC in an uncomplicated and flexible way in a real environment with the required hardware devices (e.g. PV system), operate the system throughout the testing period, and perform corresponding tests and further developments. You get 24/7 remote access to the test system via VPN to support your development with access to real systems.
Communication in the Smart Grid
Intelligent Metering Systems
We operate a test system with smart meter gateways (SMGW) from leading manufacturers, numerous modern measuring devices (mME or “smart meters”), and have access to a smart meter gateway administration (GWA) in the Test-PKI. We support you in identifying the benefits of smart metering systems for your energy management and IoT solution, and in evaluating them by means of prototypes or PoCs.
We are Certified
EnQS Quality Management System
In 2020, we decided to further develop our already well-structured documentation and work methods in accordance with the requirements of a quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. The functioning quality management system of EnQS has been certified by the external certifications of TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH since December 2020.
